Philosophy and Aspirations
The vast majority of catalytic functions in living organisms are achieved by enzymes,
which is also one of the most essential components in synthetic biology.
From the perspective of synthetic biology to recognize life, its essence is data-driven and designable.
Sequence determines the structure, while the structure determines the function, and the
computational design of enzyme sequence based on structure is an important research hotspot
and frontier field in recent years. This research group is oriented to the demand of
creation, mainly carries out the research on the design of new biochemical reactions and the design of
new enzymes, and constructs a biocatalyst transformation scheme with wide application and intelligent
planning through computer protein design technology, with a view to analyzing and understanding the
basic laws of protein catalysis function, and guiding the research and development of a new generation
of industrial green catalysts.
